A 15-year-old Springfield boy shot Wednesday afternoon during a suspected robbery later died of his injuries.

The victim was identified as Kamell Golden. He was taken by private vehicle to Springfield Regional Medical Center and later transferred to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, where he died early Thursday of his injuries.

Springfield dispatchers confirmed that there was a police pursuit Thursday afternoon around 2:30 p.m. related to the shooting, which ended around the intersection of East High Street and Raffensperger Avenue.

Multiple suspects were taken into custody, but dispatchers did not release their identities.

Springfield High School had counselors available Thursday for students and staff and will continue to provide these services Friday, he said.
